Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson is finally happening, if sources are to be believed. While Dana White has made an open statement that this fight is ‘being considered’ for April 2020, there’s still a shroud of doubt over the fact that this will be confirmed.
This is because four times in the past we’ve had a situation where the two men have gone for a fight but the match has been canceled. Hopefully, we’ll be fifth time lucky with these two. Meanwhile, an interesting statement comes from Ali Abdelaziz, Khabib’s manager. Here’s a closer look:
Tony will beat Khabib.

Khabib’s Manager Comments on Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson
Ali Abdelaziz knows how to manage a guy who likes being in the news at all times and he is himself a little bit of a newsmaker! In a recent statement last week, Abdelaziz had said that a boxing match between Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. was almost confirmed for January 2020 but Dana White intervened to cancel it out!
He has now commented on the fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson where he has said that no one is ‘sleeping over’ Tony. Basically, he has made it clear that Khabib’s camp percieves Tony as a threat and they will be giving their best to eliminate this threat to the undefeated champion!
To be clear nobody is sleeping on Tony Ferguson , he is on 12 fight winning streak for a reason , we will have the best training camp and we will have faith in Allah for both guys to stay healthy. Let’s do this . EAGLE TIME. KHABIB TIME @TeamKhabib
